Abstract

This paper investigates the problem of a finite crack in a material layer under the theory of non-Fourier heat conduction. The concept of thermal flow intensity factor is introduced to show the singularity of the thermal flow at the crack tip. Dependence of the crack tip thermal flow field on the thermal flow intensity factor is established in closed-form. Time-varying crack tip thermal flow intensity factors are obtained with sufficient accuracy. In addition to the single crack problem, solution technique and numerical results for the problem of two collinear cracks are given. Effects of crack length and layer thickness on the thermal flow intensity factors are discussed in detail.
